New York born composer Timothy Dunne earned his Doctorate of Musical Arts in Music Composition in 2008, studying under Sergei Slonimsky at the State Conservatory of St. Petersburg, Russia.
His compositions, including works for piano, voice, orchestra, small ensembles and solo instruments, have been called “strikingly written” by The New York Times and reveal a rich and turbulent creativity in search of a fresh, modernist grammar. Writing about the music featured on this album, Nigel Osborne has said that Dunne’s compositions constitute “a field of complete originality where atonality meets the ghosts of tonality and figure meets ground in a wild and open space”.
